2016 ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowship Winners Announced

SIGHPC and Intel have announced the 14 first-ever recipients of the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowship. The fellowship is funded by Intel and was announced at the high performance computing community's SC conference in November of last year. Nominees spanned 21 disciplines and represented large, mid-sized, and small institutions in 23 countries. Of the 14 students named as winners this year, twelve are women and four are underrepresented minorities in their country of study. The winners received travel support to the SC16 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah (USA), where they were recognized at an awards ceremony. They also received a complimentary membership in SIGHPC for the duration of their fellowship.
